Stereographs or stereo cards of Palomar Mountain. Stereographs aka stereo cards are two photographic prints mounted on card stock to be viewed through a stereoscope, producing a three dimensional view. Stereographs were a popular photographic medium, reaching a peak in the years 1902-1935. Stereoscopic pictures are almost identical, taken from slightly different angles.

In May 1966, a San Diego County special use permit was granted to Charles Darby for a ski resort on an eighty acre site owned by Carl ‘Wog’ Bergman, on the west side of the S6 road at the 5,200 foot level about a mile and a quarter north of the post office, and four miles from the Observatory. The temperatures were often too high for making snow, and snow falls were not numerous.

Each township is divided into 36 one-square-mile sections.

The reference books and monographs following have been selected to aid teachers and beginning students of the history of oceanography. The list is based on two principles, either that the publications are readily available in major libraries, or that they have not been superseded as sources of information. The periodical literature is not included because of its extent. This is an updated version of a paper first published in Earth Science History 12 (1993), 2-4.

Annotations are included for many publications so that the reader can learn a lot about the Canyons without chasing down individual publications.

They planned to produce the great American novel, but the stork came flying low. They had to turn to potboilers to pay for the baby, and hung out the white flag. But the stork couldn't understand signals and kept bringing them more babies, until they realized that instead of the great American novel they had produced the great American family.

In the early 1980s, a group bicycle ride started in Venice, California, and proceeded south along the beach bikepath to and around the Palos Verdes Peninsula and back. At an overlook of the Long Beach harbor, with discussion led by Christopher Michael Hassett (1952-2003), B.I.K.E. free-associated its way into being. Definitions of the B.I.K.E. acronym vary, but B.I.K.E. is not well served in the expenditure of time on definition.

The San Diego Bay Bibliography references the scientific & gray literature on the Bay up through 1994 and it is NOT current. Compiled from numerous resources (including Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute, Regional Water Quality Control Board, & local library catalogs), it is not comprehensive since so the Bay literature is elusive. In addition, there can be duplicate references varying in completeness.

Several factors influence book binding: how much the publisher wishes to spend on binding; the publisher's judgment on the type of binding likely to appeal to a book's readership; the state of binding technology; and, the contemporary climate of design. The Victorian influence on design dramatically shaped bookbinding in the 1800s, going so far that quantity of ornament was intended to imply beauty, sometimes verging into aesthetic excess, with decorations irrelevant to book content.

The Gulf of California Bibliography was developed for those interested in marine sciences, with references covering a geographic area from Cabo Corrientes to Cabo San Lucas, northward to the head of the Gulf, at the mouth of the Colorado River. The East Pacific Rise at 21 deg N has been included, since it is important to Gulf researchers. Most references to the terrestrial flora and fauna of the Gulf Islands have been excluded. References were obtained through June 1991 in compiling this...
